Yeah, a bit, I'm not quite sure what you're trying to get at though.

How do you feel about Einstein?

well whatever i said might sound nonsensical but might have made sense in 50s as these people know lots about nuclear bomb/nuclear energy and afraid that Soviet's gonna get new technologies from these people. but it's also true that this type of fear was also somewhat nonsensical even in the past as these people weren't into dictatorship and more about education system that Soviet was about to establish (never happened as they thought physics principles are against communist agenda. whatever that means).

don't know about politics of Einstein. did he even state his political ideas beyond any Jewish related issues?

He was a socialist and wrote essays about it. I believe he was monitored by the CIA as well.

Apologies for my getting off topic here.

I'm really hoping someone other than Mrs. Clinton, Bernie, Trump!, Cruz, or Rubio emerges after NH

He did make Rubio look pretty bad there. Probably best performance for Christie to date, but far too little far too late.

I would honestly be really happy to see Christie or Kasich gain over Rubio, but it's probably too late for something like that to happen.

Rubio was brutal last night. Seriously, this is the best hope? He's like one of those old fashioned dolls where you'd pull a string and they'd say the same phrase over and over again.

Trump will be the biggest beneficiary. With Rubio knocked down a number of notches he can lock up NH, win SC. Heavy favorite in NV and Florida. Cruz was tailor-made for Iowa but sacrificed whatever likeability he had to take it. Can't see him surging in SC.

Trump and Carson standing there side stage like a couple of boobs while none of the other candidates bothered to give them the heads up that their names were called was just the tits.

Highlight of the debate really.

Can one of you Americans explain to me why Ted Cruz doesn't poll well in SC? Aren't there loads of evangelical-type voters down that way?

Carson didn't hear his name called because of the applause for Christie. Thought it was a class move for Trump to stand with him so he didn't look like the only jackass. It was funny as shit.

Speaking of funny

What are you talking about? The first two are clearly social democracies.

I know you're pedantic about what qualifies as socialism or communism, but really now Vlad.

I think his beef was that Irvine didn't call them social democracies, he described them as socialist states of some description. And yeah, bit of a difference.
